POLL: Would you go to Coventry City games if they cancelled groundshare & moved back to The Ricoh Arena?

20130625-125102.jpgThis afternoon The Sky Blue Trust and fans of Coventry City take their latest protests to the streets of Coventry in protest at the club’s move to Sixfields in a ground-share with Northampton Town Football Club.

Previous protests include unveiling a ‘statue’ of SISU boss Joy Seppala at The Ricoh Arena, marches at SISU’s offices and those of the Football League, and a clearly visible flag at Glastonbury music festival.

#KeepCovInCov is the message on social networking sites, with many fans saying they will boycott games at Sixfields.

Yesterday the club announced that season tickets and memberships were now on sale for the upcoming season, but caused a stir with the use of the hashtag ‘#WeAreCoventry’ with many fans hitting back with hashtags such as ‘#WeAreNorthampton’ and ‘#WeWereCoventry’ in disgust at the club’s move 30 miles up the road for ‘home’ games.

But have the club’s owners SISU now burnt too many bridges?

Ricoh Arena bosses ACL have stated that the club have once again rejected fresh talks to negotiate a deal to remain at the stadium they have called home since leaving Highfield Road in 2005 – but if a solution was found and somehow Coventry City remained at The Ricoh Arena would you still boycott, or would you once again travel to matches?
